A Private Opening Event was held at W.T. Brookshire Hall located on the grounds of UT Tyler on August 25, 2017. The opening celebrated the partnership of the Tyler Museum of Art, the Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy and Valerosa Designs and Gallery, to use art to engage the community and energize the corridors of the college.

Artists represented by Valerosa Designs and Gallery, and whose work had been chosen, were present to talk about their art and to participate in a helicopter drop from the second floor for attendees on the ground floor.
